Thanksgiving. Allman Brothers just discernible upstairs. Good times with great people loom large for this evening.
I just realized that this portrait was taken in the yard of the house where our evening will take us. Giving thanks for a discussion of portraiture is appropriate because it's all about honoring the relationship with the subject. They are number one. Respect for them is paramount if you want to make an image that reflects who they are. And who they are will not come through if a subject is given cursory hello
s. I love to hold conversation through the camera. It will become invisible if the sitting is about the two of you and NOT about the portrait.
